It is no surprise that obstetricians have a significant higher likelihood of being sued for medical malpractice as compared to most other medical specialties.  By the age of 65, it is estimated that 75% of physicians in low-risk specialties and 99% in high-risk specialties will have experienced a lawsuit. OB/GYNS are among the most likely to be sued among all physicians. Many of these medical malpractice claims focus on allegations of failure to diagnose, delay in timely intervention, failure to rescue and procedure injuries.  Keeping pace with obstetrics patient safety science and risk mitigation strategies is challenging yet essential for promoting the best clinical outcomes.

In the latest Healthcare Risk Management Update, Mike Midgley hosts Larry Veltman, M.D. and Victor Klein, M.D., as they discuss:

  • The concept of "Getting to Havarti" as a metaphor for perinatal safety
  • High reliability organizations and how the principles apply to perinatal care
  • Areas in the practice of obstetrics carrying the most liability
